    1999 Saab 9-5 4 Dr SE 2.3t Turbo Sedan Review

    Great Car. Very Comfortable And A Pleasure To Own — I really liked this car. It wasn't the fastest or best handling car...but for day- to-day driving it was great. Very comfortable on the road.

    Pros: Comfort, gas mileage, fit and finish, extras like ventilated and heated seats

    Cons: Needs better acceleration, handling

    1999 Saab 9-5 4 Dr SE 2.3t Turbo Sedan Review

    Nice When Launched; Now A Little Dated — Quirky but good power and great to drive. Particularly like the throttle-by-wire that has different sensitivity depending upon when 'sport' button is pressed.

    Pros: Easy drive

    Cons: Badly needs a new model and new skin

    1999 Saab 9-5 4 Dr 2.3t Turbo Sedan Review

    My Favourite — Performance 0 - 100 abt 10 sec (some small mods!), excellent brakes, top speed - faster than I ever want to go! Beautifully finished, good looking, specially the beige interiorior and dashboard styling. Does abt 8 L per 100 km, nicest car to drive that I have ever had (although not as MUCH FUN as a Golf 1). I have made some small upgrades to the (9 speaker, 5.1 channel) sound system, only plays CD's, no DVD's. but sounds quite good. This car has many thoughtful features that I like - "Night Panel", a lot of courtesy interior lights. Handling on winter roads is nothing short of amazing. I have had nothing to repair on this car, except for replacing the rear shock absorbers when I bought the car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Interior styling, driving position.

    Cons: Largish, not very economical.

    One Of The Most Distinctive Looking Cars On The Road By Viggen1

    This is probably one of the best riding SAABs ever built. BMW and Mercedes do not compare with the legroom in the rear or the ride quality. Drive Sense really makes a difference when switched to spo... Read More

    Slightly Pricey, But Great Performance By Lee
